a global provider of industry-built ERP
, has been positioned as a Major Player in the IDC
MarketScape: SaaS and Cloud-enabled Manufacturing ERP 2019 Vendor
(doc #US43702818, March 2019).

SYSPRO is publicly recognized for three major strengths in the report:
customer support, user interfaces, and social ERP capabilities to earn a
position in the Major Players Category.

The IDC MarketScape study assesses 13 of the leading SaaS and
cloud-enabled Operational ERP software solutions and discusses the
criteria the IDC MarketScape deems most important for companies to
consider when selecting a system.

Mickey North Rizza, Program Vice President of IDC’s Enterprise
Applications and Digital Commerce, stated, “The SaaS and cloud-enabled
Operational ERP MarketScape is a comprehensive study evaluating several
dimensions of a vendor’s performance over a multi-month process. IDC
analysts not only review vendor RFIs, we interview some of each vendor’s
customers, and do comparative side-by-side research. Operational ERP
solutions are a large spend of many companies’ budgets, and this is a
tool to help match the right vendor to your business.”

The IDC MarketScape notes “SYSPRO is single-source industry-built,
end-to-end ERP system that provides an out-of-the-box flexible,
reliable, customizable, and scalable solution for manufacturing and
distribution companies.” The specific SYSPRO strengths are stated as
follows in the report:

  • Training, Support & Automation: A key philosophy and
    approach to customer service and support is to empower customers
    through knowledge and access to tools to enable them to self-help.
    This includes SYSPRO Learning Channel (SLC) which provides tutorials;
    self-paced on-line learning and associated Role-based certifications.
    It also includes bots within applications that direct users and
    explain the necessary processes to follow.
  • UI, Mobile and Web based Interface: SYSPRO is easy to use,
    simple to understand, intuitive, engaging and always available. The
    focus on user experience means the software is straightforward and
    easy to customize for a user’s specific role and business process.
    Espresso, the mobile offering, provides access to manufacturing and
    business processes and data on the go. It enables SYSPRO customers to
    use applications that will work anywhere, anytime, on any popular
    device, providing instant and secure access to key business
    information. SYSPRO’s web-based interface, Avanti, with its consistent
    user interface, uniquely gives customers the same SYSPRO ERP user
    experience through a web browser on any device, without having to
    learn a different operating system.
  • Social
    : Recognizing that next generational users interact
    with technology (and their peers) differently, SYSPRO built in a
    socially sensitive and aware set of workflow-enabled digital ERP
    capabilities. These capabilities allow for users to engage with their
    systems in a familiar manner as they would in engaging their social
    media platforms

SYSPRO has been recognized as a manufacturing industry leader by several
IT analyst firms and is considered by many to offer a rare combination
of both leading-edge technologies plus exemplary customer service. “At
SYSPRO we understand that ERP is one of the most important decisions a
manufacturer or distributor will make to grow their business and achieve
greater profitability,” said Paulo de Matos, Chief Product Officer of
SYSPRO. “It has always been our aim to be a true partner to our
customers, and we have invested in very sophisticated training,
information access, and ongoing support conduits to ensure that our
technology is not only first rate, but highly rated and appreciated by
our customers.”
